Rockies Sign Javy Lopez

It's a day later than expected, but the Rockies have signed catcher Javy Lopez.  He gets $750K, non-guaranteed.  The total possible value is $1.6MM.  I kind of understand the signing - teams are always reluctant to turn a pitching staff completely over to a rookie catcher (Chris Iannetta) while Yorvit Torrealba finished '06 on the 60-day DL with a strained shoulder.

Lopez has caught just 38 games over the past two seasons, so the 36 year-old will have to get into shape if he wants playing time.
